An Exploration of Cumberland Island
Cumberland Island National Seashore lies seven miles off St. Marys, a town 15 miles east of I-95 exit 1 in Georgia. A ferryboat ($10 round trip) connects the mainland to the island twice daily (9 AM, 11:45 AM) but runs sporadically in winter advance reservations are recommended.
Reservations are a must to ensure your choice of campsite; spaces are limited, even in the backcountry. A small nightly camping permit fee applies. There are no facilities on Cumberland Island no restaurants, no stores. All of your food must be brought in and garbage packed out.
For reservations and more information, call (912) 882-4335, Mon-Fri, 10 AM to 4 PM.
